Obvious to Everyone But Me
Now that I am shooting all my landscapes with a mirrorless camera, certain obvious things are coming to light I’m sure others know. But for those who don’t, when you take the lens off the body, the sensor is directly exposed to the elements, in this case rain and snow. With no mirror to protect it, these elements which include dust, land directly on the sensor. This could be a disaster! Especially when the instruction book warns in many places, “Don’t Poke” the sensor. This all occurred to me photographing Mono Lake Basin with the Z7 / Z24-70 and a rain drop hit me square in the eye as I was removing the FTZ. Now that I thought about it , it’s obvious to me!
